You wrote: "We have also found early 1775 records
from Apple's Church in Thurmont, MD and Monocracy
Church in Frederick Co., MD." Are these Brethren
or Lutheran or Reformed records?

I trace Neff, Shidler/Shideler, Swinehart/Swihart
records of that time period. Are any of these
names listed there of various spellings?

I'm in the process of updating my files with a lot
of new found information on these lines. I'd like
to hear from interested persons who descend from
these lines. I know there are a lot of Brethren who
connect to these lines. I will be updating the
Jacob Neff D-line which includes these names on our
Neff Web Site.

This updates are being printed in Neff News.
